A Leadership Guide to Multi-Cloud Success for Federal Agencies

August 11, 2022

A Leadership Guide to Whitepaper
Organizations in the public sector are moving from a single-cloud community to a multicloud one. Examples of this have already been seen in the intelligence community and Department of Defense space with the introduction of the Commercial Cloud Enterprise (C2E) and Joint Warfighter Cloud Capability (JWCC) contracts. These are just two examples of the massive shift that is occurring across the entire public sector as it modernizes to integrate multiple cloud providers. Leadership needs to plan for the impact this will have on the way programs are staffed and the way systems are engineered and tested. Successful multi-cloud adoption requires thoughtful, purposeful action. A broader availability of cloud service providers (CSPs) means that federal organizations must become smarter and more discerning cloud customers

How Do Sovereign Wealth Funds Invest? With Strategic Diversification

whitePaper | April 30, 2022

Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) remain a prominent and diverse group of global asset owners. They represent unencumbered fiscal resources of the host governments, invested under a range of different mandates. In this study, we considered 34 of the largest SWFs, located in 26 different jurisdictions, which as of year-end 2020, have total assets of almost $8.5 trillion, representing 5% of total global markets.2 Between 2018 and 2020, total SWF assets under management (AUM) grew by an annualized 11.3%, as compared to 5.5% over the previous time period (Figure 1). We find that the acceleration in AUM growth is largely a function of market gains due to the post-2018 drawdown in equities. However, we estimate that organic inflows into global SWF holdings are roughly in line with the mid-single digits during the 2014–2018 time period.

FIDO for e-Government Services

whitePaper | December 13, 2022

The global COVID-19 pandemic closed offices and forced governments to rapidly move services online, if they weren’t already, to serve its citizens. Although usernames and passwords are easy to deploy and easy for citizens to use, they leave systems and users vulnerable to cyberattacks. They are especially vulnerable to phishing attacks designed to steal login credentials and compromise legacy multi-factor authentication (MFA) tools like those using one-time passwords (OTP) and push notifications. With phishing attacks on the rise, it is imperative for governments to support “phishing-resistant” MFA technology that is also accessible, efficient, and cost-effective.

whitePaper | March 16, 2022

A long-term commitment to sustained federal research and development (R&D) funding in AI is critical to advance the United States’ leadership in global innovation. The federal government should increase non-defense investment in AI and basic research to strengthen research in critical fields of AI R&D, including healthcare, education, finance, and more, that underpin economic stability and robust growth. Such investment should reflect a multidisciplinary approach, focused on advancing basic and applied R&D, research on AI governance and norm-setting, and supporting research infrastructure with multi-agency collaboration.
